Equitable Letters for Space Physics (ELSP)

Dear community, 

We are pleased to announce that Equitable Letters for Space Physics (ELSP) is now accepting recommendation and nomination letters to review.  ELSP’s mission is to encourage merit-based recommendations and nominations in the space physics community by providing resources for letter writing and reviews of recommendation and nomination letters.  ELSP seeks to achieve this goal by:

1) providing resources for people writing letters of recommendation and award nomination at the undergraduate level and above,
2) provide resources for people wishing to learn about different implicit biases and lessen their manifestation, and
3) provide reviews of recommendation and nomination letters, with the goal of lessening implicit bias in these letters.

This system functions similarly to double-anonymous journal article reviews, with the ELSP executive director acting as editor.  If you have more questions or would like to participate, please contact us at equitable.space.letters@gmail.com.

You can also learn more about our mission and find both letter writing and implicit bias resources at the ELSP website: https://equitableletterssp.github.io/ELSP/

Angeline G. Burrell, John Coxon, Alexa Halford, McArthur Jones Jr., and Kate Zawdie
